    Bmw E30 320 - my build... my story
    Pritty much dissed this thread but will uppdate some time.. got allmost 100pic's and a another thread in a car forum if some one would like to see it (in swedish thought)
    Show your suport by like'n & follow the thread (L)

    First off all let me tell you what this car is... this is the first 3:serie bmw ever realesed and thats the E30. My is from 1989 and has orginial a straigth 6, 2L engien in it thats why its called 320 - 3 serie with a 2.0L engine.

    Hello everyone, A long time ago I made a thread about my old 50cc moto project and allot of ppl seems to enyoj those kinds of projekts. So I decided to make a new thread about my new projekt. if you missed my 50cc project and want to see it, you can see it here

    ps. Im really bad @ spelling, I know thank you.

    The white one to the left is my E30, the one to the rigth, for your information is a E28 518
    this is my wheelgap with a pair of TA-technicks coilovers... its going to be better~
    Current sett-upp
    engine swap from a bmw E35 325 ( M50b25, singel vanos)
    Changed drivetrain from a E36 328 (the biggest one you can fit)
    Bmw Z-f gear box from E36
    Cold air intake (WOOOW)
    stabilizer arms bouth rear and back

    Goal ~
    The goal of this car is not to make it one of the fastest or enything like that, but Im chaning the engine cuz more horses is never wrong, and the m52 engine is more stable then a M20 (the orginal engine)
    But the real goal of this car so to make it a Stance car, and just to say it the goal is to
    actually get a shout out on stancenation. (just cuz why the fuck not)
    Air suspension - make it LOW as FUCK
    BBS RS rims (when I get the money for it)
    Bigger breaks to fit the enging better.
    Re-Paint the enging bay Avus blau (bmw couler)
    Fix every litel rust mark
    Make everything pritty much as perfect as it can be.
    Make the engine bay "clean" remove everything not "must have"

    Fix new interrior - Black ladder
    etc etc... just fix everything so the car allmost looks as new from the store, just its much lower and a litel small changes ;)

    I would like to make it "hellaflush" allmost... but not really as just as much -camber.. This is what hellaflush is -

    Uppdate 03-20-2015 - boring info...
    Well, first of all I need some where to really fix this thing, and I got a garage for free from a mate, thought I need to fix it in case that I want to use it, so Im allmost done with it. I only got 1 wall left to fix (isolate, put up some out-faceing walls, paint it (maybe) and fix the ceiling) could post a pic of this later, thought this is not really so much fun to watch...

    I think I will be done with it this week end, not sure if I got the time for it thought, but I hope so~

    Uppdate 04-07-2015 - some more boring info...
    Well today I got my garage done - just need to wait for the electrican to do the last things, then I can start this thing up for real!

    And I allso have bougth another BMW E30 - thought its "lil" broken... got it really really cheap and Im going to use it for spare parts!

    Wow, I would really LOVE to see this, as a fellow (fairly new) BMW (and cars in general) lover I am just so excited to watch all the projects :D

    And as far as the turbo goes, what type would you prefer? A light one that gives you alot of fun with drifting and burnouts, or a bigger one for topspeed?

    I could be wrong, but are you building on a m20 engine? In that case, how far do you think that you can get, HP wise?

    A supercharged 328 E36 :) Sleeper mode. Although I didn't build it, I have some things to do with it, and repairs in the future will be done by me!
    Earlier I owned a Audi 1.8Ts (180hp one) - 2000, Didn't really do alot to it, just a daily car :P

    I really love the E36 looks... they look so old and clasy but at the same time the look like a new car for its own time... haha I was working on a E36 last week end ^^
    But I would love to see a pic of it! :)

    @Davva how much effort is it to paint the brake calipers yourself?

    haha like none? I can't really understand if this is a serouis qeustion or not haha (no offence if it is ^^ )

    Idk I never touch cars, but aight. How much can I fuck it up? Should I just pay someone to do it for me or should I yolo it?
    Keep in mind I'm silver rank with this shit
  20. Davva

    Davva Bmw E30 Donor

    You could make it the easy way but not even removing the caliper, and just remove the wheel and do it from there, just use a nice brush and be gentel, not much can go wrong besied if you get paint on the breaking bads or disk's, or just remove them, its normally only 2 bolts.
    In that case gets some clams or something to stop the break fluids on the break lines, remov the break line (just a nut basicly) then its normaly 2 bults on the back of the hub and you can slid the thing of the disk, if you do it this way thought you prbly need to check if you got air in the system after when you put everything back together so the first way is much easier and would recomend that. Either way its not that hard, and you can do this ur self!

    edit: (no idea how much you can but I upploaded a pic of my new breaklines just 1h ago so this is how the "hold" up, its just a nut with a line in the midel, realy easy to remove)

    (the long ones is in the front, in my case atleast)
